The life support of Rajib was removed around 12:40am at the Intensive Care Unit of DMCH. He had been kept on life support at the hospital since April 10.
Rajib, son of late Helal Uddin of Indrakul village in Bauphal, lost his parents in his early age. Since then, he had been the guardian of his two younger brothers.
On April 3, Rajib Hasan, a year II student of Govt Titumir College, was going to attend his classes by a double-decker bus of Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BTRC). He was standing on the rear gate dangling his right hand outside as the bus was overcrowded.
When the bus got stranded at the Sonargaon crossing near Panthakunja park, a ‘Sajan Paribahan’ bus tried to make its way through the narrow space in between the BRTC bus and the footpath. However, Rajib’s right hand was pressed in between the two buses and got severed from the elbow.
Being rescued, the victim was first taken to MH Samorita Hospital at Panthapath and then shifted to the DMCH.
